DG Geila was looking forward to a well earned rest when she finishes her term as District Governor for 410A on 30 June 2018 – but this is not the case!
It is with pleasure that we announce that she has been selected to serve as a Constitutional Area Speaker on the newly formed New Voices Beyond the Horizon Team. This team consists of only 32 members around the world under PID Sangeeta’s leadership.
With effect from 01 July 2018 DG Geila (IPDG Geila!) will work extremely closely with the Council Chairman Viv Grater, Multiple District Council, District Governors, DG Teams, 2019 – 2020 CC Elect Jacqui Hocking and her Shadow Council, as well as the Global Action Team Area Leaders, GLT Paula Lang, GST Carl van Blerk and GMT Rashmi Kooverjee.
The New Voices Initiative celebrates the contributions made by women as Lions Clubs International welcomes its first female International President. This initiative promotes gender parity by focusing on increasing the number of women in Lions clubs, as well as closing the gap between men and women in leadership positions. This will be done by facilitating seminars and/or workshops at the District and MD Conventions.
It is indeed an honour for DG Geila to be selected to serve this Team which we all know she will put her heart and soul into. Well done!
